My name is Vahid Mehrin born in Iran. I'm inspired by radiant natural light, bright colors and photographing real, raw and authentic moments.
My approach to photography is completely calm and relaxed and I capture candid in-between moments instead of the overly posed. I strive to give my clients my highest quality of work and create an experience and friendship that lasts long after you receive your images. Photography is an art of constant learning and growing and I am proud to say I do both every single day.
I believe in living each day doing what makes you happy, laughing too hard and loving so much that your heart is bursting. I believe in learning every day in every aspect of life and business. I believe in striving to be the best person, wife and mother I can possibly be. I believe bright + colorful images are gorgeous, but nothing captures emotion quite like black & white. I believe in quality over quantity. I believe in family and that it comes first, always. I believe in shooting to capture what I feel in that moment. I believe curling up on a balcony full of plants with a cup of fresh ground coffee and an enjoyable book is the best kind of Saturday morning. I believe lazy weekends on the couch with Chinese food and a movie marathon are good for the soul.
Art and story are two of the only things that have ever made sense to me. I’m a firm believer in honesty, art, human connection, love, justice, and going with your gut.
I've been interested in photography for several years and have really started shooting in 2000.
My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people. I focus on non-models and place regular people in exaggerated situations that highlight an aspect of who they are. I look for a sense of defiance and fortitude in my work.
I consider myself extremely lucky to call a passion a career, and take as much enjoyment from meeting and talking to someone new, as I do about creating ongoing commissions for existing clients.
I hope that my photographs will capture a time in your life that you will treasure for the rest of your years. I hope the photos will serve as reminders of love, family, friendship, laughter, warmth, kindness and moments you wish to relive over and over.
If my photos resonate or connect with you in any way-- if they make you feel things, please send me a note and I would love to chat more about photographing and collaborating with you to create lasting art.
